    My husband and I are extremely pleased with Reilly! You team, Bruce and David, are masters. They came each day when they said they would and worked diligently, and I was pleasantly surprised that they were quiet and didn't listen to radios. Bruce is a jewel; he was so patient with me and explained answers to all of my questions."

  • 10 Ways To Reinvent Your Space

    [caption id="attachment_5497" align="alignleft" width="262" caption="Layout Of Living Room"]Room[/caption]

    When it comes to designing your home, sometimes the biggest changes can be the least expensive...sometimes even no cost at all. Instead of spending a fortune on new furniture or home decor, think about changing the layout of your room. Here are some tips courtesy of E-How Home:

    When your home starts to feel stylistically stale, it's tempting to imagine what you'd do with unlimited funds and an army of contractors. Big fixes go a long way, but don't get caught up in something drastic when a smaller change -- such as adding a rug or installing new flooring -- can bring a static room into a different light. If you're looking to change your space without a complete overhaul, consider some of these smaller tweaks.

    Color Yourself Refreshed

    Repainting may be the simplest way to turn a room around since it redefines the mood. One strategy is to ditch conventional white and opt for stronger colors -- bold reds or deep browns and grays. Lighter colors can make a room feel bigger, and darker colors bring the walls in. Yellow is one example of a color that can really bring a room to life.

    Do More With Your Floor

    That space at your feet can significantly impact your room as there are some dramatic options with your flooring. If you have old wall-to-wall carpet, rip it up and replace it with new carpet. If there's concrete underneath, you can seal it for a stylish industrial loft look. Wood floors can be refinished or even painted while rugs can hide a host of problems if you don't want to redo the whole floor.
